Chion is a science fiction novel written by Clounagh’s ICT technician Darryl Sloan. It is the story of a bizarre national disaster that leaves everyone in the country imprisoned inside their buildings, unable to step outside without deadly consequences. The main setting of the novel is Clounagh Junior High School, where 700 pupils and staff are trapped, running out of food, with no hope of rescue. Long-term survival seems impossible, unless someone can figure out a solution before mass panic sets in.
The novel is being sold to school pupils to raise money for Katya Vancheva Orphanage in Bulgaria, priced £4. £2 from each sale will be donated to the orphanage. Around 130 copies have been sold so far, raising £260. In recent years, Clounagh has established a relationship with Katya Vancheva Orphanage. Pupils who take part in the annual ski trip will have opportunity to visit the place, meet the children, and present them with gifts and money raised through various school fundraising events, like this one.
Mr. Sloan would like to extend an invitation to the general public. Ordinarily, copies of the book sold through bookstores and the internet do not raise money for the orphanage, but if you contact him through the email address below, you can arrange to purchase the book directly and raise £2 for Katya Vancheva.
